(This is what happens when 1916D10C tries to answer questions about modern coins)
Not sure how that happened, but I was trying to post the fact that there are 1776-1976 S non proof silver clad quarters. Your picture is hard to see clearly so I don't know whether you have a proof or not.
I stand corrected CoinCorgi. My bad. I thought all S MintMarked coins were proofs after 1975.
And apparently no one under 40 has a red book! lol
-_- don’t rub it in CoinCorgi. I’m sorry I was blunt.

click on the dates to see more info about that specific MM coin.
A redbook has a lot of better info.
Get one if you don't have one. You'll save yourself a lot of time and learn a lot too if you read through it from time to time.
Just to be clear, weight has nothing to do with whether it is a proof or not.
